Notes for George W. Pace: George and Catherine took care of Catherine's father (an old Revolutionary War Veteran) in his last years and when Henry died he willed the property and 3 slaves to Catherine. Catherine sold the real estate and financed the purchase of 102 acres near Palmyra on Long Island Creek in Fluvanna County abutting Commodore Stockton's busy gold mine. George and Catherine, together with their 3 aging slaves and a brood of children, became members of the nearby Lyle Baptist Church and hand-worked their own gold mine (Pace Gold Mine) until the "War Between The States" broke out in 1860. The mine, like the others in Virginia, was concealed from the invading "Yankees" and the Pace boys marched off with "The Sons of Fluvanna" to defend "Dixie", a sweet little Fluvanna town near the Columbia and James River Canal.
